Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Dead Pony Club and Dead Pony

This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That's why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

Sorry I cannot "get" this beer. Presentation in a wacky bottle should have alerted me. This is a yuppy beer and where comments are made to keep up with the in crowd rather than as a true reflection. It has a cracking colour, crazy description and a taste far from that expected from a pale Ale albeit the background is USofA rather than UK. Sorry but throughout the drinking of this beer the taste of tinned pinnapple predominated above all in both smell and taste. Yuk.

Great branding also.

Amber color, beautiful off-white foam, quite creamy.
In the smell a citric hppiness, something like nettle, something floral.
In the mouth malt, citric, light body. And again something floral.
Quite short aftertaste, again citric and fruitiness.
Drinkable, but nothing exceptional.

Deep goloden, almost orange colour, short life yellow head. Aroma is full of tropical fruits, some spices.Medium to light palate, a bit watery. Taste of tropical fruits and citrus. Not the best Brewdog, IMO.

Arrived via a friends suitcase from his overseas visit. drink by 12/16/14 on the bottle. Wowzers...Me love you long time. six-nine months max for a run of the mill ale.
330ml bottle. Brewdog was once ubiquitous in New England when it first invaded the shore of the continental US. Due to the surge in US craft beers I think this English outfit to a backseat du to it's geographic proximity.
It's appearance is outstanding. Bright and brilliant for a pale ale. Good lace, good head retention. Textbook qualities. This beer looks like it will taste outstanding.
This beer has no aroma. The hops are completely muted.I can't say it smells bad, or dank or good. It has no aroma. It tastes alright though with a slight warming bite at the end. Light mouthfeel that includes a tiny bit of clingy-ness with the hops. Must be something amazingly neutral they used as this despite it;s lack
The beer has some good qualities and some that just don't shine through. It could be old beer or just some crazy experiment that went slightly arrive and still ended up tasting good. I enjoyed this beer despite it's lack of character.
